High incidence of venous and arterial gas emboli at rest after trimix diving without protocol violations.

Abstract

SCUBA diving is associated with generation of gas emboli due to gas release from the supersaturated tissues during decompression. Gas emboli arise mostly on the venous side of circulation, and they are usually eliminated as they pass through the lung vessels. Arterialization of venous gas emboli (VGE) is seldom reported, and it is potentially related to… (More)
